Peter Fernandez was becoming frustrated that the car-leasing deal with the Japanese customer hadn't closed. It had been two weeks since he began playing the "getting-to-know-you" game that Japanese insist on before doing business: He was going to the customer's office, to dinner and drinks with him, even to his house. During that time not a word was mentioned about a lease.
